The Norwegian Army will be equipped with new communications intelligence (COMINT) and jamming solutions from Rohde & Schwarz (R&S), Janes learnt at DSEI 2023, held from 12 to 15 September in London.

The new electronic warfare (EW) solutions are being delivered under the Heimdall project, which will enable the Norwegian Army to detect, locate, and analyse information faster and more efficiently while increasing their EW capabilities, Wolfgang Marchl, vice-president of R&S Government Solutions said in a company press release.

Deliveries began in June 2023 and will conclude by the end of 2024, the managing director for the company's Norwegian operations, Ove Ladegård, told Janes at DSEI.

While Ladegård was unable to elaborate on specific technical details, he did mention that both new and existing vehicles will be equipped with the new EW systems.

Norwegian publication ITromso reported on the Heimdall project noting that the military, specifically the Intelligence Battalion of the Army, are trialling the EW solutions at the Setermoen firing range.

According to the publication, the acquisition is intended to re-establish the army's ability to jam and deny. The systems are being delivered in three phases and will eventually replace the Munin 2 system.
